Abstract:

An elegant portrait of desire and betrayal in Old New York. In the highest circle of New York social life during the 1870's, Newland Archer, a young lawyer, prepares to marry the docile May Welland. Before their engagement is announced, he meets May's cousin, the mysterious, nonconformist Countess Ellen Olenska, who has returned to New York after a long absence. Wharton contrasts the intensity of true passion against the complacency of a loveless but proper marriage, questioning the expected behavior of the upper social class.
